“C” is for Coffee and that’s Good Enough for Me

(A-Z April Blogging Challenge)

Coffee…coffee…coffee!

If there was such a thing as a state drink, Washington’s would be coffee and the flag would more than likely have the Starbucks logo on it.  I wasn’t a coffee addict until I met my husband.  When we started seeing each other, he would bring me to Starbucks for coffee where we would sit for hours and talk.  At first, I wouldn’t get anything while we were there because I didn’t like coffee but then one of my closest friends told me to try a Carmel Frappuccino, that was the beginning of my addiction.  I know that frappuccinos aren’t really considered coffee drinks by the true coffee drinkers out there but it was the start of it all.  Eventually, I graduated from frappuccinos to Mochas then to Carmel Macchiatos then to straight coffee with a bit of cream and Stevia.  My grandfather would be proud.

If the truth be known, it was really my grandfather who gave me my first taste of coffee when I was only 4 years old.  What he did was make a cup for himself then he would dip some toast into the coffee and give it to me to eat.  It was delicious.  It tasted like the candy Coffee Nips.  Yum!

Anyway here in Washington State, you can’t go a block without seeing a Starbucks or some other coffee shop on every corner.  It’s like slot machines in Las Vegas, there is one at every turn and we here in Washington are like the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street, except we are obsessed with coffee….coffee….Coffee!  We are coffee connoisseurs…coffee snobs…coffee addicts.  If it’s not coffee…it’s tea but not just regular tea.  We’re talking Chai teas, Green teas, Tazo teas…Green tea lattes.  Thanks to Starbucks we have assimilated the world to our coffee ways.  There for, I only have one more thing to say:

“We are Starbucks. You will be assimilated.  Resistance is futile.”

  1. Futile to resist… I read your post while waiting for my espresso this morning. How unoriginal of me!

    I loved the little part about you & your Grandpa. So sweet!

    Thanks for sharing…

    • Thanks Jennie! I hope you’re enjoying your coffee. I’m about to get mine ready for the morning. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and commenting! Enjoy your cup of jo ~E

  2. It took me awhile to like coffee as well. When my husband joined the military he didn’t drink coffee either, of course it wasn’t long before he was converted. He started drinking it at home, but I was much further coming around. I started off with lots of cream and sugar or flavoring and could barely finish 1/2 cup. I have progressed to two cups every morning with a little bit of flavored creamer! Enjoy!

    • It’s funny how soothing a cup of coffee can be in the morning now and how coffee seems to taste better with conversation. Thanks again for stopping by today! ~ E

    • Yeah…unfortunately we’ve done the same thing. Our son likes coffee too. He’s not as addicted, thank goodness! Thanks Mindy for coming by and commenting! Here’s to the next cup! ~ E

  3. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever
    run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
    A few of my blog readers have complained about my website
    not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

    • Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I haven’t any issues, so I can’t help you. Since I’ve started blogging, things have worked out well. Have you connected with the tech department or help desk for WP? That’s I would do. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

  4. I do not even know the way I ended up right here, but I thought this submit used to be great.
    I do not understand who you’re however definitely you are going to
    a famous blogger in case you are not already.

    Cheers!
